from what i've seen online its dwarf namwa as the main "ice cream" mis labeled musa.
Dwarf has the red in the pups stem/leaves. all the pisang awak (tall) I have don't have much red in stem at all..
then the leaves, short/fat dwarf style vs. skinny/longer on tall ( I even read about a formula once length/width ratio of leaves that determine category of normal vs. dwarf musa)
Current species going:
Dwarf Cavendish first home depot purchase, Apple Mansano TC, Cardaba Plantain TC, Rajapuri TC, Gold Finger TC, Dwarf Nam Wa TC, Dwarf Orinoco TC, Sweetheart FHIA-3, "dwarf red" that is really a 14ft., true blue java thanks matt!, Pisang Awak, Pisang Raja, Hua Moa, Dwarf Brazilian, High Gate.
Most are still unconfirmed young Tissue Culture plants.. fingers crossed...
Also into food forest and tropical fruit stuff....
